Participate in the Development of Indiana’s Massage Rules

The Indiana State Board of Massage Therapy is drafting rules to fill in the details of the state’s new massage therapy licensing law, which changes Indiana’s system from voluntary certification to mandatory licensure. Nothing will change until 183 days after the Board issues the new rules, which will not be for quite a while. Once the rules do go into effect, all existing certifications will be “rolled over” into licenses.

Indiana Licensure Bill

Indiana SB 337

Indiana SB 337, recently introduced in the state legislature, proposes a mandatory licensure system for massage therapists in Indiana. SB 337 also proposes to require that all massage therapy instruction obtain Board approval.  Mandatory licensure bills have been introduced in several legislative sessions in the past and they have never succeeded.  We will keep you updated on the status of the bill.
